Prince George was blocked from being a Page of Honour for King Charles this week

Prince George was noticeably absent from King Charles’s first State Opening of Parliament Speech as monarch this week.

On Tuesday, King Charles read out Rishi Sunak’s policies and legislation for the parliamentary year and the event was filled with pomp and pageantry.

The King’s Speech reunited the Pages of Honor from Charles’s Coronation – but the second in line to the throne was no where to be seen.

At King Charles’s Coronation, the Pages of Honour were George, Nicholas Barclay, Ralph Tollemache and Lord Oliver Cholmondeley.

This Tuesday only Nicholas, Ralph and Oliver reprised their roles while George was replaced by Charles van Cutsem, son of Hugh and Rose van Cutsem. And it’s all down to a very relatable reason, according to Tatler.

Prince George, 10, will be taking a very important set of exams in November.

The youngsters is believed to be taking the ISEB Common Pre-Tests, or the ‘eleven plus’; exams typically taken in Year 6 by 10 or 11-year-old students.

These exams are used to assess a pupil’s aptitude and potential before application to secondary schools. The format usually comprises an English, mathematics, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning test.

The ISEB Common Pre-Tests are accepted as measures of a pupil by numerous eminent schools in the UK, including Eton and Marlborough College, the Prince and Princess of Wales’s respective alma maters.
